Ed and Eileen Pauley had a dream. In the words of Eileen “Every boat has a mission. And you need to pick the right boat for how you want to travel. And for us, if we’re going to live on it, it’s going to do what we want it to do and be comfortable.” And as Ed points out regarding the propulsion system, “What do we have to do to start? No warm up…We just go.” Study plans are now available for the Electric Philosophy 40 catamaran cruiser!
Recently Sam offered study plans for the Honker H.B. 20 – a houseboat placed into an extended and widened Honker. The study plans sales response was amazing. Could we go one better? Introducing the Mud Dauber 22 H.B. based on the Mud Dauber 23 design. The parallel sides of the hull give more of a houseboat feel and the beach landing gear in the bow make her useable for extended beach cruising with all the luxuries of a tiny home on the water! The Mud Dauber 22 H.B. offers a full-time queen-size berth, enclosed head, galley, dinette for two, wardrobe closet, settee – a true big sister to the wonderful Honker H.B. 20.
The Surf Scoter 24 adds the missing link between the Surf Scoter 22 and the Surf Scoter 26 with this new feature – forward slanting pilothouse windows giving and open, spacious feeling to the captain and first mate as they look outside from their very comfortable ergonomic chairs, And generous sized forward berths. And a new profile look! Study plans are here today!
The Honker House Boat 20 is a crossbreed! She has a Millie Hill 20 shanty boat interior placed into Honker 18 utility pram hull that has been lengthened and widened. The best of both worlds! She allows us to get on the water in a towable small boat with the interior of a much larger boat. Downloadable study plans are now available.
The Linach 15 two-part nesting dinghy does it all – rowing, sailing, and fishing – and can fit in the back of a pickup or minivan or SUV that can handle 4 x 8 plywood sheets. Study plans are available now. Full construction plans will be available soon.
The Candlefish 16 is a burdensome fishing skiff. Deep and seaworthy, it is wonderfully suited to life in our changeable weather and strong tides.
The Polliwog is a great entry into wooden boat building! With the Polliwog, we offer the amateur builder the opportunity to build a lightweight and strong dinghy or tender.
